I'm so Damn Tired

Writing Articles is my dream.I have been writing for many years. but I think working on this site would be better.

I'm so damn tired
We all are that is true
But have you stayed up for weeks
With only an hour of sleep
Have you seen the things I've seen
Inside my dangerous dreams
The horrors I have faced
In the darkness of this room
Have you ever closed your eyes and seen a face
So treacherous it couldn't be true
Only to see that it was you
Disfigured and dismantled
Tearing away the flesh from my face
Biting my fingernails to dust
Scared to face the demons
That wait for you in the dark
They feed off you
They drink your spirit
As you stay awake night after night
I need some sleep
Damn I'm so tired
Sing me to sleep with your lullaby
See that blue and black as it forms
See my eyes as it drags
See my body go sore
As all my insides turn numb
I try to fight it so hard
You say its only a dream
But live one night as me
You'd try to stay up
No sleep

Very vivid and quite disturbing. Good descriptions.

Scary ... real, in that sense it's 'job done.' Excellent!!

Yet if it's reality for you, then use some soothing music before sleep ... reflect on the beauty of God's world --the gentle streams, the meadows, the rose --a flower of Love ... the shooting stars inside your Heart Centre. Breathe deeply, visualise your inner suns. Hari Om!
